Chrissy Teigen is showing her support for Calvin Klein's supposed "plus-size" model.

After the popular brand released a new "perfectly fit" underwear campaign with Myla Dalbesio, controversy erupted over the terminology used to describe the model.

While some thought the popular undergarments brand was calling their model "plus size," Teigen can't quite seem to understand all the fuss.

"I don't even know the controversy with it honestly. I saw the photo, she looked beautiful—who cares?" she told E! News at Shutterfly's Wine, Dine & D.I.Y. Design holiday event at Sopra in New York City. "That's what I don't get—so what are they saying? Are they saying she's not plus-sized?"

She added, "The internet is full of fake outrage. If there's one thing I've learned...stop getting your panties in a wad all the time over everything possible."

For the record, a Calvin Klein spokesperson explained that the company never called Dalbesio plus-sized. Instead, they claimed the line caters to "the needs of different women" and was simply intended to be "more inclusive."

Coming from experience, Teigen knows how difficult the modeling industry can be. Recently, the Sports Illustrated cover girl recalled a gig that fell through because of her body size.

"I actually was fired from a job. Forever 21, they booked me directly when I was much younger. I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo," she shared with DuJour. "And they shoot that photo off to my agency, who then calls me as I'm sitting in the make-up chair, and they say, ‘You need to leave right now. They just said that you are fat and you need to come get your measurements taken.'"

Teigen fired for being overweight? What has the world come to?

"Just live your life and listen, if you don't like the ad, don't buy the clothes," Teigen shared with E! News. "That's it. That's my thing with a lot of people.  What happened to just like losing respect for someone or just not liking the brand anymore?"

And for the record, Teigen is sooo not shopping at Forever 21. Go you, Chrissy!
